(Natural Looking Swiss Dentures)
We offer natural-looking dentures if you wish to improve your ability to bite and chew.
We can also fit Swiss dentures, which come in a variety of natural shapes and shades of teeth and gum, to give you an incredibly natural appearance.
Types of Dentures: Comprehensive Options at Dentures Fitzrovia
Partial Dentures: Replace one or several teeth.
Full Dentures: Replace an entire set of upper or lower teeth.
Dentures stay in place using clasps around neighbouring teeth or natural suction. Sometimes, a denture fixative is recommended for additional stability.
Each denture at Image Dental Clinic is uniquely designed by our skilled dentist or dental technician, tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient.
Your journey to new dentures begins with a thorough examination by our dentists, assessing:
- The condition of any existing teeth and restorations.
- Gum health to ensure no infection is present.
- Bite alignment.
- Gum and bone structure, especially if you have no natural teeth.
We will explain the procedure and provide a detailed treatment plan, including all stages and costs.
The Denture Process: Expert Care and Precision at Dentures Fitzrovia & Marylebone
Generally, 2 to 4 appointments are required, with the process being similar for both full and partial dentures. The exception is an ‘Immediate Denture’, fitted right after tooth extraction and adjusted or replaced within 3 to 6 months.
First Appointment – Taking Initial Impressions:
During your first visit to Image Dental Clinic, our dental professionals will start the denture-making process by taking detailed impressions of both your upper and lower teeth. These initial moulds are crucial for creating a baseline model of your mouth.
The impressions are carefully prepared and then sent to our specialized dental laboratory. This is where the initial stage of your custom denture creation begins.
Second Appointment – Precision Impressions and Bite Registration:
At your second appointment, we take the precision to the next level. Our technicians craft a ‘special tray’ tailored specifically to the contours of your mouth. This tray is used to take a more accurate and detailed impression of your teeth and gums.
Additionally, during this visit, we use a wax bite block to accurately record the way your teeth come together (your bite). This step is vital to ensure that your dentures will allow for a comfortable and functional bite once fitted.
Third Appointment – Trial Denture Fitting:
In this crucial appointment, the trial dentures, which are essentially a preliminary version of your final dentures, are ready for fitting. These are set in wax, allowing us to make precise adjustments.
For Cobalt Chrome dentures, the metal framework is completed, and the teeth are attached to this framework with wax.
The trial fitting is to confirm that the dentures fit well, are comfortable in your mouth, and that your bite alignment is correct, ensuring the highest standard of care expected at Dentures Fitzrovia.
Any adjustments needed are identified and noted during this trial fitting. The dentures are then sent back to the laboratory for the final adjustments and completion based on the feedback from this appointment.
Fourth Appointment – Final Denture Fitting:
This is the final stage of your journey to new dentures. During this visit, your dentures, now fully completed and adjusted based on the previous trial fitting, are ready to be fitted.
Our dentist will carefully fit the final dentures, ensuring that they sit comfortably in your mouth and that your bite is correctly aligned.
This appointment marks the culmination of the meticulous process of creating your custom dentures at Image Dental Clinic, ensuring they meet your individual needs and preferences.

Adapting to Your New Dentures Fitzrovia
Adjusting to new dentures takes time and patience. Initial speech impediments and minor soreness are common but temporary. If soreness persists, contact Image Dental Clinic for adjustments.
Maintaining clean dentures is crucial. They should be rinsed after meals, brushed twice daily, and removed at night to rest your gums. Store them in a sterilizing solution overnight. For stubborn stains, professional cleaning during your dental visit is recommended.
Regular Dental Check-Ups
Even with full dentures, regular dental examinations are essential. Our dentists check for changes in your gums, underlying bone, and screen for oral cancer.
At Image Dental Clinic in Fitzrovia, Marylebone, and Central London, we are committed to providing personalized and comfortable dental solutions, including high-quality dentures. Our team ensures that every step of your dental journey is met with care and professionalism, helping you regain confidence in your smile.
